Our company is strongly committed to supporting craftsmanship and local manufacturing in the United States. Every Vaer watch is hand-assembled and pressure tested in Los Angeles by our team of skilled technicians. The 18 individual components of the Classic Watch include a 316L stainless steel case, a scratchproof sapphire crystal, miniature gaskets and spacers, custom curved springbars and a durable Swiss quartz movement.
Water resistance ratings in watches work on an ATM (atmosphere) scale. Most watches use 3ATM (30 meter) as a base resistance. Because the rating is at static pressure, you could breach the seal of a 3ATM watch while washing your hands. Our goal was to build a watch you could dive with and this meant achieving a 10ATM (100 meter) rating. We achieved this by using an extra-thick sapphire crystal, a rotating caseback with a round rubber gasket, and a threaded screwdown crown that maintains a quality seal at the most vulnerable point of the watch.
To further enhance the functionality of the product, every Vaer Classic Watch comes standard with two interchangeable NATO-style bands. Our standard band is made from a dense nylon weave that is comfortable, waterproof, and strong enough to withstand 350 pounds of direct tension. The band features 13 laser cut holes, spaced 5mm apart and spanning a range between 155mm and 215mm. We also offer a waxed leather strap, handmade in downtown Los Angeles from premium American cowhide.
I spend quite bit of time around the water with paddle sports during the summer. I was looking for a sturdy, functional watch that could handle the conditions. I’ve destroyed several cell phones. My Vaer did well with sea kayaking conditions in Maine this summer. No more dead cellphones from water damage. A happy paddler.
It’s a great timepiece and I love it!
I purchased two NATO straps from you, in Khaki and Sand. I have NATO straps from a couple of other makers, and the quality of yours is the best of the lot. Unfortunately, the colors are quite a bit different (lighter) than how they appeared on the website. I am going to return them. Too bad, bc as I said, your quality is great.
Very pleased with my field watch!
